We had an amazing time at the ERELU ADEBAYO CHILDREN HOME, Iyin Ekiti on March 19, 2022, celebrating ‘The World Oral Health Day’
We taught the children the appropriate tooth brushing technique and gave them “oral care kits”. Courtesy of The MATTER ®.
To our surprise, we met a beautiful young girl(Olamide). We were informed that she was admitted into the home about a year ago with orofacial swelling. She has an orofacial tumor with supervening infection( Presence of pus discharge from the swelling.)
The authority has since sought medical treatment for her but couldn’t pull through with the proposed surgical procedure due to financial constraints.
The matron said that the girl needs an urgent surgical intervention to the tune of about 300k Naira.
At the moment her facial esthetics, self-esteem, masticatory function, and speech is compromised.
We call on good-spirited individuals, organizations, and the government to help join hands together to give Olamide a chance to have good health.
Also, let me use this medium to appreciate MATTER ® for sponsoring the outreach.

Thanks in anticipation of positive feedback.
